A Good Thing Coming To The End

Yes, the Golden State Warriors had an amazing season, and their playoff run ended tonight.  However, this blog is about Ballet West, and this post is about a good season soon coming to an end.  I know, I’ve been super lame with the blog lately (or lack of blog), but I’ve been pretty busy … dancing – yes, Summer Wilson, that is a good thing.  So, tonight was our final dress rehearsal which means tomorrow is opening night of Innovations 2013.  The show is far from customary as each ballet explores new ways to present dance to an audience.  I experience walking through an audience, partnering using only ropes and being boxed in (literally) all in one night … woo hoo!  You’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when you see the show.  Anyway, I took a few pictures (as usual) from studio rehearsals a week ago.

  1. Thank you for taking these wonderful pictures. For those of us parents that don’t live close by, it gives us a glimpse of performances that we can’t see. It has been a pleasure to read your blog!

  2. Innovations was one of the best I’ve seen this year. So much fun and a great way to end of the year!

  3. I loved Innovations this year. Some years there are ballets that I find “ehh,” but this year I loved them all. I really liked “Spun” and Adrian Fry’s use of rope. Thanks for the update on the dancers leaving. Sometimes people forget that “fans” want to know where the dancers are going when they leave BW.
